Form 5500 and Schedules Preparation
In addition to all Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) welfare benefits, health care FSAs under a cafeteria plan are subject to the Form 5500 requirement for any plan with 100 or more participants at the beginning of the plan year. Effective for reporting on plan years beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2009, all Form 5500s must be filed electronically. We can prepare the required forms for all of your welfare benefits and send them to you with instructions on how to file your forms electronically.
